November 14–20 is national Victims and Survivors of Crime Week. With financial support from the Department of Justice Canada, Victoria Women’s Transition House (VWTH) has launched the Intimate Partner Violence and Abuse Awareness Project to bring to light the prevalence and impact of intimate partner violence and abuse on women and children. Throughout the week, we will share resources, inspiring stories of courageous survivors, information on VWTH’s services and community-based programming available for women and their children, as well as the role community members play in supporting victims and survivors of intimate partner violence and abuse.
